Curriculum Vitae


Since November 2011 I hold the Chair of Public Economics and Health Economics at the Department of Economics of the University of Augsburg.
I joined the Department in September 2008 to assume a professorship in Health Economics. Before I came to Augsburg I spent two years in Canada, one year at the Economics Department of the University of Waterloo where I worked as an assistant professor and one year at McMaster University and its Economics Department where I held a Postdoc position. I received my graduate economics training in Berlin, first at the Department of Economics at the Free University of Berlin (1998-2001) and alter in the unit Market Processes and Governance of Social Science Research Centre Berlin. I hold a doctorate in economics from the Free University of Berlin (supervisor: Prof. Kai A. Konrad).
